KidZone: UM Conceptual Development Lab

Make Your Own Jellyfish!

Sunday, July 2 @ 5pm KidZone Tent

Tonight in the KidZone children can make their own “jellyfish” out of paper bowls, markers, and colorful yarn! Children can choose which of their favorite colors of yarn to use as “tentacles” and we will provide a wide variety of colorful markers so children can decorate the tops of their jellyfish however they want! This is a fun, easy craft which will be enjoyable for children of all ages!

While children enjoy the craft, parents can learn more about the University of Michigan’s Conceptual Development Lab directed by Dr. Susan Gelman. Her lab studies how children learn and think about the world around them through fun, interactive games.

An interactive area for our youngest festival-goers, the KidZone tent provides a fun and safe area for children and their parents to discover and explore a wide variety of hands-on activities with different community partners. From learning karate, creating homemade instruments, or meeting prehistoric critters, KidZone offers different nightly activities for families at Top of the Park.

Led by community partners, all sessions are free, and take place from 5 to 8 pm every Tuesday through Sunday at the KidZone tent at Top of the Park.
